Petunium sowing rules
You can plant petunia seeds from January to April. Planted in open ground when there are no morning frosts (usually in May). Seeds should be placed on top of pre-moistened soil (it is better to use a mixture of sheet or sod substrate, humus, peat and sand). After that, moisten them with a spray bottle and cover with glass. Do not sprinkle with soil! Try to keep the temperature within 20-24 degrees and in time moisten the seeds before germination, remove condensate from the glass and remove the crust from the ground. If landed in winter, you will need additional lighting. A pick of a plant occurs when two true leaves appear. After that, the air temperature should be gradually reduced to 18-20 degrees and start feeding first with leaf growth stimulants, and then with mineral nitrogen fertilizers.
It is better to plant a petunia in an open place - under the sun the flowering will be much more abundant. The flower will delight with bright colors until the first frosts (late October).
In “Agrouspeh” the seeds are packed in flasks, which not only help not to lose small seeds, but also maintain the optimum level of humidity, thereby preserving the quality of the seed.
If you follow the rules of planting and caring for a plant, you will long enjoy the beauty and delicate aroma of these wonderful flowers.
